The 2024 Jeep Recon and Wagoneer EVs are some of the cars that were showcased at an event in Las Vegas. See below for more details!
Walk into a Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep or Ram five years from now and you'll see a host of new cars to choose from.
That's why Stellantis invited several of these dealers to a swanky event at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, showcasing their full portfolio of recent concepts.
Recently, revelations from an event attendee, which include replacing the Dodge Durango with a three-row Dodge Stealth SUV, but this is our first look at images taken at the conference showcasing some very important new products.
As expected, these vehicles include the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT and Ram 1500 Revolution BEV concepts, but arguably of more interest because we've seen so little of both the Jeep Recon and Wagoneer S.
The new Jeep Recon ticks both of those boxes and looks suitably tough and square for good measure.
We're pretty sure the Jeep Recon isn't designed to replace the Wrangler, but it will sit alongside it in the lineup and will only be available as an EV.
It's built around the new Stellantis STLA Large EV platform and will come with suitable off-road goodies like e-locker axle technology, Jeep Selec-Terrain traction management, thick trail rubber, tow hooks and underbody protection. of the bodywork.
You'll also be able to remove the doors and open the roof, and the Uconnect media system will come preloaded with navigation for some of the country's most popular overland routes.
And in case you're wondering how you're going to charge a Jeep Recon in the desert, Jeep says the battery will have enough juice to top off the Rubicon and get back to a charging point.
Another all-electric Jeep, the Wagoneer S is eyeing vehicles like the BMW iX. Like the Recon, it's built around the STLA Large platform, but its driving dynamics and styling are optimized for urban situations.
That platform can accommodate batteries up to 100kWh, and while Jeep didn't provide specifics on the battery or charging times, it cited a range of 400 miles when it first announced the concept last September.
The concept is also claimed to deliver 600 hp (608 PS) to its four wheels, courtesy of two electric motors that can hurl it to 60 mph (97 km/h) in just 3.5 seconds.
Other stars of the event, as mentioned earlier, included the RAM 1500 Revolution electric pickup truck and the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT.
But the mostly dormant Chrysler brand has also appeared to remind us that it will be EV-only in 2028.
The company unveiled the 400 hp (406 hp) twin-engined Airflow crossover in concept form in 2022 as a rival to the ford Mustang Mach-E and the Tesla Model Y.
